Lake Hibara is a lake located in Yama District, Fukushima, Japan. It is a part of the Bandai-Asahi National Park and is the largest of the lakes in the Bandai-kōgen highlands.FormationA mesotrophic lake, Lake Hibara was formed as a result of the July 15, 1888 eruption of Mount Bandai. The resulting debris avalanche created a natural dam that then filled with water, submerging Hibara Village. The remains of Hibara Village still lie at the bottom of the lake.RecreationA tourist industry has built up around Lake Hibara, offering hiking trails, pleasure cruises, and campgrounds and other lodging. In the winter, ice fishing is popular.

  • In winter snow is piled up near the Lake hibara is a vantage point for snowshoeing. Trekking and enjoy views of Mount Bandai in the snow in and around is the best.

  • Out of the lakes formed by the eruption of Bandai's largest lake. The location is out of the boat and the fishing in the base for outdoor activities such as camping, road and Marathon. Well there aren't authentic away cheap tourist shops of Goshiki-NUMA area, round up and alone I go around Lake hibara in good atmosphere. Note is there some narrow width of North and West and the bike and to run the marathon runners.
